Glenapp Castle, Ballantrae, South Ayrshire, Scotland Vacation Rental

 

Glenapp Castle Scotland, a place that is as true today as it was 150 Years Ago. Many describe Glenapp as being a place, not only of great beauty but, of inspiration; a place where creativity seems to flow and often strategic decisions are made. A truly hidden gem, a place to be inspired, reflect, recharge and reconnect; where you will feel 'at home' whether you're travelling on your own or with a party of friends, Glenapp Castle is the journey that you've been waiting for all of your life. That may be a strong sentiment but our clients have described us as "a fairytale" come true.

The combination of forest, seascape, and the protection of this baronial castle all lend themselves to create an atmosphere for planning, reflection, and reconnecting. The castle itself can accommodate up to 42 guests in 17 beautifully appointed rooms (21 bedrooms as of September 2020). We also can accommodate up to a further 36 guests in 5 star local cottages along the Stinchar River and on the harbour's edge with complimentary transfers to and from the castle.

For those special occasions when you really want your friends or your family to be together, Glenapp is the ultimate destination. Our exclusive hire offer really does give you the freedom to enjoy this castle hotel and the company of those close to you in complete privacy. If you have an event you would like to share with others, Glenapp will create and prepare a bespoke event for you. Your dedicated personal event manager will build an itinerary to meet your highest expectations.

Fine dining at Glenapp Castle's award winning restaurant is a truly unique experience. Whether you choose the six course dining experience or the 'Taste of Glenapp' three course menu, we believe you will enjoy the authenticity and flair of the cuisine. Indulge in a delightful afternoon tea, or enjoy an extended evening dining experience in the gracious surroundings of the castle's elegant dining rooms. The restaurant's six course gourmet menu which includes canapés, coffee, and petits fours allows you to watch the sun set over Ailsa Craig, the Mull of Kintyre, and across the beautiful Ayrshire coastline. Whatever the occasion or time of day, dining at Glenapp Castle is a culinary experience not to be missed. Major investment is continuing on the estate and in the castle gardens and during 2020 we will see even more produce grown here at Glenapp with plans for even greater sustainability and sometimes quite rare produce grown here in the Castle's gardens.

Many visitors to Glenapp don’t even feel the need to venture out of the castle grounds! As well as many walks to explore, our thirty-six acres of gardens and woodlands also boast herb, fruit, and flower gardens, a 150 foot Victorian glasshouse, and an all-weather tennis court and croquet lawn. The grounds are bounded on all sides by yet more woodland and open countryside to explore. Guests staying at the castle can enjoy a range of country sports from shooting, high pheasant and partridge shooting, deer stalking as well as salmon fishing on the River Stinchar, or trout fishing on a nearby loch.

After nights of fine dining and surrounded by the wonders of Glenapp Castle and its estate, come on board the Glenapp boat to now explore the Hebridean islands and your adventure will continue. Your private chef will be on board and the professional crew will navigate you towards remote islands, coastal castles and distant inns. Enjoy lunch at one of the many famous seafood restaurants, before arriving at an island or beach where the Glenapp island concierge team will have prepared your luxury glamping in the wild. A well-deserved hot shower and a ‘dram’ before chef prepares a memorable dinner under the stars. This will be an adventure which few have experienced before.

Travelling between islands you will spot bountiful sea and bird life, or go ashore to the site of an ancient monastery, archaeological site, hidden castle garden, or whisky distillery. This will be your memorable and unique Glenapp sea safari. For the first part of your adventure you might decide to take ‘Ripley’ the sea eagle with you. ‘Ripley’ has been trained aboard the boat to catch fish in the local waters. At 7 pounds and with a wing span of 7 feet she is a formidable hunter and can easily take fish up to 4 pounds in weight, one of the many raptors who visit Glenapp through our partnership with Elite Falconry. Cameras ready, the Hebridean islands await.

We have so many tours available, so many amazing things we can plan for your trip. Our dreamexoticrentals team is one of the best at creating the "Castle Experience." So get set to enjoy one of the Best Castles in Scotland. The luxury, award-winning five star hotel in Ayrshire, Scotland, provides an intimate level of service with genuine attention to detail. It has great beauty in its period furnishings and interiors as well as through the breathtaking gardens, forest, and the seascapes that surround that castle.
